Loyal fans flocked from far and wide to witness last night’s spectacular show in San Francisco with K-pop sensation Taeyang. The Giant Step produced Music Experiment 2.0 show in partnership with MTV Iggy and Intel brought out music lovers from as far as Seoul, Mexico City, Miami, and Philadelphia, some of whom started lining up as early as 6AM.

Guests came dressed in all white on par with the night’s theme, making for a luminous and picturesque evening. An awe-inspiring Taeyang played with his force of a band and elevated a packed room for a solid hour, then going on to graciously offer multiple encores. An immeasurably pleased crowd cheered, cried, gleefully sang word-for-word, and danced themselves away.

To thank Taeyang for his contribution in sharing Asian culture with the Bay Area, Mayor Evan Low of Campbell, California presented the star with a well-deserved certificate of recognition on behalf of Mayor Edwin Lee of San Francisco.

Following our massively successful Music Experiment 2.0 shows with Arcade Fire in LA, Empire of the Sun in NYC, and Disclosure in Boston, our show with Taeyang was the perfect cap to an unforgettable run. Hats off to the whole Music Experiment 2.0 crew!
